Babe readers start campaign to expel male student found responsible of sexual assault
Arizona State said expulsion is ‘too severe’ because he has a high GPA
Students at Arizona State have called for a man found responsible of sexual assault to be expelled after a babe investigation.
Officials at the college said the man, who we are naming James because he is the subject of an active police investigation, had sex with a female student while she was too drunk to consent.
Yesterday we reported how a university board said expulsion was "too severe" a punishment for James because he is a "significant member of the ASU community", works on a scientific research team and has a 3.9 GPA.
Now students at ASU have launched a petition to call on the school to expel James, and it has reached over 500 signatures.
It has picked up support from babe readers on campus and has spread across the US.
The Change.org petition asks for students to call James Rund, ASU's Vice President of Student Affairs (whose job it is to approve or deny the findings of the university board) and demand that he expel the student responsible for sexual assault.
Arizona State University found this student guilty of sexual misconduct and he was originally expelled. However, now, the board wants to overturn the sanction and instead, suspend him for a mere two years.

The petition organizers write: "Allowing students to return to campus after violating the sexual misconduct policy not only puts the ASU community in danger, but sends a clear message to all sexual predators at ASU that even if they are found guilty, they will face little to no consequences."

I'm as happy as anybody else that a known pedophile didn't manage to snag a seat in Congress last night, but honestly, the American political sphere is still beyond fucked.
